The South Carolina State Ports Authority (SCSPA) has named Fred N. Stribling as Director of Marketing and Sales.

He will be responsible for the SCSPA's carrier and cargo sales, pricing and marketing functions. Stribling will report to George W. Young, vice president, marketing and sales.

Stribling is an honor graduate from the University of Tampa and has been engaged as both an active duty and reserve officer with the U.S. Army. He presently holds the rank of lieutenant colonel in the Reserves.
